Graphics are pretty good,
but some areas or tanks can be a bit gritty and undetailed at
times. Although the people look fine but other FPS have done a
lot better with facial features. You do come across some nice
The sound on some of the levels, mainly the first few level there's
just to much sound they tried to put in which makes it blurred
and it gives a unreal atmosphere unlike to first levels from the
Medal of Honor games with the d-day and pearl harbor scenes. Music
which real adds to a battle, scene, atmosphere which don't seem
to be there. The only good think of this area is the voice acting
from some good actors.
The controls as mainly like any other FPS with left and right
to change grenades and guns, throwing of grenades are performed
with a different button then the fire button. The zoom on the
sniper can't be zoomed in or out. When you take control of the
tank, you will have to than get used to that. The controls are
not great for the tank, you will be driving in the wrong direction
and hit things. The first (inside) View is easy for shooting but
without being able to see making it easy to crash, so you try
the 2nd view (view from behind the tank) aim now is with a crosshair,
which when shooting does not go to where it it.
The gameplay you would think
be good with different people in different locations and use of
a tank but its frustrating at best with the character walks/runs
likes he has iron boots. With no fast run makes it very hard to
leg it if there's a tank or a lot of incoming fire as it rips
you up with the very slow speed. enemies seem to be almost bulletproof
where as a whole clip of a machine gun will kill them or a few
head shots with a sniper or a dozen in the chest may kill them.
The tank missions can be dull as with each tank you see you both
fire until your the only one left then if you taken some damage
you just wait for your tank health regenerations. If it showed
when you cannon was reloaded and it the tank could move a bit
faster then there could be a bit of a strategy to severing then.
What is good about the gameplay is that you can hold medic packs
and with the press on the up button you can use one and you can
use one on a team member but it easy to let them die as they always
get in the way. You have the ability to lean around corners to
look and shoot but will not let you through a grenade like this.
The other thing is there's not many levels where you get to use
a sniper gun or you can't not drive any jeeps although you do
get to sit and use the gun when the caption drives in one level.
Well after reading about
the gameplay you would think there's not much replay, well there's
not. No co-op game or any multiplayer maps/games only for those
with online capable. There's a few making of the games which you
get by progress and cheats when you complete the game on different
For up to 16 players can play online. Game modes are Deathmatch,
Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag and Serach & Destory. Playing
online is fun but slow movment is still anoying. There are some
very good levels to play on, some which is great for snipers.
==BUY OR NOT TO BUY==
To finish of its not a very good game and
they would of been better if they made a better FPS and a different
game with just tanks. Dont buy this for single play unless you
are Online then you should buy this cheap, although there is now
COD: Big Red One now out.
